The 5 Best Places in London to Watch The 2023 Rugby World Cup

1406 days, 3 prime ministers and a global pandemic later, the Rugby World Cup is back this September! This year's tournament promises to be a cracker as the world's best players head on over to France for 50 days of rugby. South Africa will be aiming to retain their crown whilst hosts France will have their eyes on glory. The world's top seed Ireland will be looking to overcome their quarter-final hoodoo. England and Wales will be desperate to improve. It's been a lacklustre period for the two! Scotland wanting to show the world just how much they've improved.
